Why Glitter Is Our Go-To For Everything This Season

Who doesn’t love to wear glitter when the opportunity presents itself? Fortunately, it’s the time of year when you literally have any excuse to get your glitter on and not have to explain yourself. And it’s not just that it’s the holidays; glitter is actually massively trending right now, so get yourself glittered up – this is only the beginning! Even if wearing glitter does give you throwback vibes to your teen years, here are four very adult ways to wear glitter that will take your look to the next level this season:

For your eyes

You can keep it low-key and swap out your black liquid liner for glitter liner, or go for full glitter eyeshadow – you do you! We’re also loving the new trend of glitter liner on the lower lashline; it’s the perfect way to add a fresh take on glitter liner. Check out our tutorial for gorgeous snow queen glitter eyeliner here.

For your body

In summer we love a bit of shoulder bling with our Huda Beauty 3D Highlighter for a sexy shimmer, but when it comes to festive partying, we’re all down for getting the glitter out! If you really want to stand out at a Christmas ball or your work event, a little glitter or gold leaf on your shoulders or collarbones will slay – it’s not just for festivals, we promise! Our trick is to spread a thin layer of Vaseline on the area you want to add sparkle to first.

For your nails

If you’re a glitterphobe, this has to be the easiest way to add some sparkle to your life without having to go out of your comfort zone. Go for full on glitter or experiment with shimmering nail beds, tips or single finger details.

For your lips

Yes, glitter lips have been around forever, but that’s probably because they look so damn good! Whether you want to make a statement and literally dip your lips in glitter or just add some sparkle to your pout with a glitter gloss – our Lip Strobe in Shameless is our go-to – this is the season to rock it!
